GPA MN is a local chapter of the National Greyhound Pets of America (GPA) organization.
GPA National supports and trusts Full Chapters to function under the Official GPA Policy, Procedures, and By-Laws. It also uses the same premise to entrust Full Chapters to operate with the Greyhounds' health and well-being at the forefront of daily operations. GPA National believes that each Chapter functions with this in mind, and stands behind each Chapter's commitment and collective experience to fulfill our Mission.
The National organization expects Full Chapters to maintain ongoing fundraising efforts to support their individual Chapter. It presumes that each Chapter accepts financial responsibility of its Greyhounds, but is prepared to assist when needed.
501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization
GPA is a tax-exempt, non-profit corporation founded in 1987, and is the largest single non-profit Greyhound adoption group worldwide. Since opening its doors in 1987, Greyhound Pets of America Chapters have worked together to adopt over 80,000 Greyhounds into loving homes.
